In July 2017 a research trip was made to Crestone Colorado to determine the exact location of the Sacred Sites Work in the Four Corners as part of Phase One of the Sacred Sites Work (done in partnership with UNESCO, Center for Earth Ethics and Forum 21). Since Mt. Blanca was determined to be the specific location, Kogi, Otomi and Lakota elders will go to Mt. Blanca and the surrounding areas to carry out the Sacred Sites Work. A smaller convergence leaders retreat will also be carried out in collaboration with Unity Earth and local Crestone community leaders.
